Is it really so hard to just realize these guys are playing a game and ignore them? Some of these guys travel the country and make a living off settlements. They are remarkably successful at making cops violate their own department policies and fudge use of force reports.

Freaking retards, the lot of them. They will undoubtedly do enough “audits” to make an impact. Unfortunately, I do t think they will like the impact they have.

Cops do need to keep their cool and ignore these dudes

This has become more and more popular but if cops refrain from violating peoples rights, it becomes moot.
The Sgt that was fired couldn’t handle the disrespect. The guy mercilessly taunts the officers but he’s standing on a public easement not breaking any laws.

The Sgt showed up, walked up towards him and got “within kissing distance” of the guy. When the guy moved back, the Sgt moved forward and kept getting in his face.

After about 30 seconds of that he slams the guy to the ground and arrests him.

He also deleted the guy’s video but they were able to recover it fairly easily. SC also makes bodycam footage fairly hard to get. Most other states are required to hand it over to anyone who requests it.

Some officers can't seem to help themselves though.

Even when they realize exactly what's going on they seem to be so offended by the fact that someone would dare not do exactly what they want them to that they end up doing something stupid instead of simply walking away and letting the caller know there isn't anything illegal going on.

I think a lot of these auditors are idiots but at least they're actually useful idiots.

Cops need to learn the freakin' Consitution and the law - problem solved.
This I completely agree with…

however, making troll threads in CT isn’t a good way of reaching across the aisle either, nor is “ganging up” on them and bashing them (or having the appearance thereof). That goes to the OP of course

personally? I’ll accept anyone crossing the aisle and upholding their oath to THE CONSTITUTION.

The best way to get rid of them is to completely ignore them, they will slither away. If you must “ do “ something just walk up take his/her picture, say nothing then just walk away.

Have you actually dealt with them? We get plenty of exposure to them. Ignoring them doesn’t work. Doing something stupid like walking up and taking their picture just causes them to get more into your face. What works is engaging them in dialogue that is quite neutral, neither agreeing or disagreeing with them. Talking about anything under the sun and passing the time with neutral banter until they themselves get bored and leave.

A group of them walked into our lobby one night. I invited them in. Asked them if the lighting was adequate for their filming, and offered them some coffee. I continued to barrage them with non-controversial, neutral banter until they got quite bored and left on their own accord. It never made Youtube because they didn’t get anything useful or controversial out of it.

We go out to this DV in a trailer park on the east end of town. We end up taking the batterer to jail. Pretty routine really.
As we escort this guy to the car, a guy on the other side of this chain link fence starts running his mouth. He had 0 involvement in the call. I tell him if he doesn't shut the f up, I am going to drag him over the f ing fence and take his as to jail. Now the agency had a reputation that we didn't take crap and most of us didn't so he piped down.
I am booking this AP in and the Sgt. comes up to me and asks me what I told the guy. I tell the Sgt (who was a former deputy chief) verbatim what I said. He smiles at me and says - that is exactly what he told me you said and walked away.
That was in the 90's. I would probably be suspended for that or fired for expressing my 1A speech on social media.

Now what was the guy guilty of? I dunno, we didn't get that far but I bet I could have hooked him up for public intox.
People are getting the policing they clamored for now. Good riddance.

The “auditors” I met tended to play around in the gray areas between legitimate free speech, harassment, and trespassing. Some are pretty skilled at it, others not so much. If they’re not breaking the law, and often they aren’t, photographing them or getting in their face accomplishes nothing. A few polite words and leave them be.

The issue usually isn’t their being at police departments. They showed up at ours on occasion, but we knew who they were and what they wanted. Problems can arise, however, when they go to schools, post offices, fire stations, public works, the finance department, etc. Those folks aren’t used to dealing with “auditors” and can be frightened by them. Some male employees of those departments can get overly protective of their female co-workers and get a little too, let’s say, assertive. It’s exactly the response the “auditors“ are hoping to elicit, and it can unfortunately lead to complications. Public works receptionists really don’t get why we aren’t arresting the bad men who were videoing their private vehicle parked in the city shop parking lot, no matter how much you explain it to them.

Anyhow, losing your temper or engaging in rhetoric with them is exactly what they’re hoping for and the last thing an officer ought to be doing. If no laws are being broken they get addressed like anyone else, no matter if it sticks in the craw or not. A little polite banter and then let them flap their gums. The more they talk the more likely they’ll say something useful to you later on.

Frauditors are fun to play with, but there is no reason to lose your **** and tackle them. They're unemployed and unemployable dregs of society. If they're trespassing, arrest them. If not, make fun of them and move on.

IDK but how many LEOs have they snagged in the last year? Five years? A google search said there are about 900,000 LEOs in the U.S. Unfortunately, out of 900,000 population, getting a few 'gotcha' is quite possible.

Maybe we should consider looking at what defines harassment in modern day America. Someone who works in an office whether or not for a gov entity isn’t the same as someone who works “in the streets” for a gov entity.

overall I don’t like “auditor” things and I wonder why they call themselves that :unsure: . I bet you it has something to do w/ overreaching government in our lives, they love the term “audit”.

I would think that they give themselves the "auditors" title because they're looking for both the credibility of the title and they view themselves as above the LEO and empowered to judge them. Truly hilarious considering the trash that actually take on the role.

As stated by others here I can't stand the " auditors" on Youtube. I always wonder why these people have nothing better to do. They are wasting the time of the officers and keeping them from responding to a real call. I laugh at the channels with " Press" or " News" in their names when they aren't reporting on any real news.
